to the u.s. as children and this administration refuses to take steps to check whether their claims are true or not. thdepartment of homeland security has gone out of its way to avoid the enforcement of immigration laws. the department policy of not enforcing will cause innocent americans their jobs. as secretary, you like all americans also must be concerned about the recent disclosure of national secrets. the methods of intelligence we used to protect security must be kept secret. when the secrets leak, american lives are threatened. recent damaging leaks include operational details of the bin laden raid, specifics about how we conduct cybersecurity, and information about drone strikes. because of these, enemies now know how we will hunt them, which will make it more difficult. o met security depends on our ability to keep secrets from those who would attack our homeland. when they become public knowledge, people and our -- people and our national petition -- interests are in jeopardy. the ability to keep secrets depends on identifying causes and put a stop to them. that is why i
in chief he has the obligation to help us to solve this problem. i ask our colleagues to please support this legislation. bring transparency. thank you. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentleman from maryland is recognized. mr. van hollen: thank you, madam speaker. i listened carefully to what the chairman of the armed services committee said, and i didn't find much that i disagree with. we agree that we should replace the sequester. we agree that it's a mistake to create the kind of uncertainty that's out there, and obviously it has an impact not just in the defense sector, but also in all the other areas where our federal government has activities. but i would just say, and i want to make sure the chairman's on the floor now and has a chance to respond, he demonstrated some leadership on this issue. last fall, because he was asked this question, he was asked if he had to put together a plan that included some revenue, he said, yeah. i understand we got to make cuts, but i'd rather include some revenue than deep cuts to defense. in fact, what he said was,
would not use the word conditionality, but i think the discussion with pakistan after they took some steps to close the ground lines of communication for supplies and so forth has worked our way back towards a more cooperative relationship. i think the u.s. in this administration has been clear about the areas of cooperation that we need to see to be able to continue to move forward with the assistance and support. starting first and foremost with counter-terrorism and things related to the safety of our troops in afghanistan. >> moving on to russia and our relations with russia. governor romney seems very upset with president obama's reset policy toward russia. the governor has described russia as the no. 1 global flow of the united states. first of all, what do you think of the governor's criticism? >> i think it is unfair and it misses a couple of the tremendous benefits we have gotten from the recent policy. from the beginning, president obama has been clear that we want to have a partner relationship with russia. where we have differences, we will continue to negotiate and press
. it required him to use up almost all of his political capital. he prevailed where no president had done before. he was right. he was right. he cut $100 billion from the federal debt over the next 10 years. he provided access to affordable health care to 30 million americans, 8 million black americans who would never have had insurance. [applause] this is a man, this is a president who has the character of his convictions. almost never since he has taken office, during this entire time, has the republican congress reached across the aisle to help. on the recovery act, which kept us from sliding further into depression, only three republican senators and not one house member voted for it. on the affordable care act, no republican in the senate and none in the house on the final vote. but it was not just on the big- signature issues, it was on the easy, obvious things where we got no cooperation. extending the payroll tax, only seven republicans initially voted for it. lilly ledbetter equal pay, three republicans voted for it in the house. when we attempted to raise the debt limit to maintain the
in virginia. whatever you want to talk about regarding the performance of your governor. by all means, give us a call, e- mail, or tweet. host: thank you. hooray for c-span. my governor is rick scott. i did not vote for him. i think he is doing a good program -- he is a good job. we have a program for future scholarships. the state will subsidize the education based on your grade point average. but that was what obama was trying to do with the tax reform as well. it is pretty ironic that when a republican doesn't, it is not ok. when a democrat does it, it is ok. those not in washington can find it online. the headline is a list of u.s. citizens. the federal government has agreed to let a lot enforcement database challenge the people's right to vote if they are suspected of it -- of not been u.s. citizens. your thoughts of how the governor is handling that? caller: unbelievably think that is the right thing to do. i am a republican, but across party lines. i think if you're not a citizen, you should not be able to vote. host: next up is of red in charleston. caller: i do not support nikki haley
-enter the country after pryor deportation. i do not think it is the right policy for us not to focus on resources for this individual. >> thank you. >> thank you madam chair. i want to congratulate you on the great work you have been doing. i think members, if you look at the activated jurisdiction document, there is a map of it and you can see everything that is screen that shows -- that is green is deactivated which is 97%. which means there are 3074 which is pretty amazing. i want to congratulate you and i also, i asked you to look at the testimony of a director because he does talk about the efficiency and transparency part of it and the the safeguards that sheriff garcia in harris county have talked about to make sure they do the work but at the same time, provide -- make sure there's no profiling involved. i want to thank you on that. besides alabama and illinois, i believe there were a couple of jurisdictions out there that passed ordinances also. california, i believe san francisco or santa clara. exactly three to follow up, it makes common sense. i remember when i did the toure to make s

are the numbers to call? -- you can also find us online. here is the front page of "the times tribune" of scranton, pennsylvania. here is the the associated press version of the story -- scranton, pennsylvania is not the only city problem with its budget. we will look at a number of stories about cities and towns across the country. here is what out of kansas from "the wichita eagle." detroit, michigan is getting help from its brothers. money problems there, and questions about how many police can stay on the job. let's hear from you and how you would get city budgets under control. from our democratic line, from michigan, good morning. caller: good morning, i live maybe 50 miles from flint, michigan and maybe 30 miles from saginaw, michigan and every morning when i get up, i noticed there have been people that have died in fires and people who have been shot, several children shot and yet our police are laid off. our firemen are laid off and yet our administrators, i feel they should take pay cuts. i feel the city commissioners should take pay cuts. or maybe laid off and bring our firemen and pol

[laughter] let me say this. we are having -- this is a pet peeve so thank you. this discussion about all that matters is tax rate is ridiculous. i cut upper head tax rates by 50% and by the time my term is out, we will eliminate it. tax breaks matter. -- tax rates matter. but any business person will also tell you the quality of a workforce matters. can they get goods and services efficiently? is government transparent? this year, we had 147 business places on the books. we had more than l.a., phoenix, and philadelphia combined. we massively consolidated them down to 43. i do not like you focusing on city hall. i want you focusing on your customer. my favorite example of this consolidation was if you buy a dog, they need a license. if he so the caller, you need another license. if you want to offer the service of watching the dog, you need another license. i was just looking for a kid to b
such a wonderful job i think of giving us good information. researching those issues which are critical to the american people. and the important to the american people in making decisions on where they want to go. so neara, congratulations to you on your leadership as well. give my best to john poddesta who is out there in the netsdzer world doing something that we know is wonderful. i know tom is here my former colleague who is working with you. and your vice president who does such a wonderful job and such a good friend. good morning. good afternoon i guess i should say. as he prepared to take office president kennedy spoke to a nation troubled by anxiety over america's leadership in the world and uncertainty over whether future americans will inherit a strong and secure commay. he offered not -- economy. he offered not soothing words but a rousing appeal and to action. he spoke to his generation of americans and urged them not to shrink. to advance. today i would suggest we confront a similar anxiety but much greater global competition. it is i think therefore essential for us to se

and that often kills them. to put a little close on this and a chance for us to converse, what is fascinating is the degree of duality in the great executive we studied. for example, is it 20 mile marching or defining moment in their capacity to do both? 20 mile marches with discipline and superb performance in a defining luck event moments that are out of their control. why did they do so much better? in the book, we noticed that over time, great executives will recall people had the genius of "and"as opposed to the tyranny of "or." it is humility and will. it is confront the brutal facts and having faith. it is productive and paranoid. when we stand back and look at a truly great enterprise, we see a huge duality under any great enterprise. that is what we call, preserved because for and stimulate progress - the core and stimulate progress. no great company exists if it does not have a core or stimulates progress. they are willing to change their practices, their strategies, there structures without compromising core values. they understand the difference between their core values and their

[captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2012] from government was there in the wee hours of the morning when we were doing our regular jobs at the same time working to start our business. small businesses operate in a world of bottom lines washington knows very little about. unlike washington, they don't have the luxury to deficit spend, print more money or profess as, quote, spending cuts, lower than anticipated growth. when the president claimed the american system allowed the askess to thrive, he made a dangerous -- allowed the success to thrive, he made a dangerous error. it does not permit them to drive. that language suggests government is a benefactor possessing the authority to give or take the blessings of open commerce as it sees fit. no, government does not allow you to thrive. government, when it operates in its constitutional capacity, does not object -- obstruct your thriving. ask
illness is important. what we learned from this program could help us in other programs of diseases coming from iraq and afghanistan. if you get a chance to visit walter reed bethesda hospital see some very strange viruses and molds and funguses that are coming from places that we never expected to see but we're seeing them now. this research program could help another research program to deal with these deadly diseases that are affecting our troops in large numbers. and so while we already give $10 million in this bill, i am going to agree with mr. kucinich and agree to his amendment to add the additional money. mr. dicks: if the gentleman will yield? mr. young: i do. mr. dicks: this gulf war illness has been something that bothered me a great deal. it's a very difficult diagnosis on what was causing this, but i think an additional investment here is worthy and i think we should accept the amendment. i'm glad the chairman accepts it. mr. young: i thank the gentleman for his comments and thank mr. kucinich for offering the amendment and i yield back the balance of my time. the chair: the q
. the bank says to us, who is going to -- what customer of ours in west texas is going to wade through 100 or even 20 pages? host: this is from one of our viewers. dodd-frank is typical of what happens when the private sector misbehaves. guest: that is true. regulation is reactive. it is like you are fighting the last war. whitneys' to happen is set of incentives so financial institutions and other entities have been sentenced to be responsive to customers rather than to bureaucrats that they know they can charm. host: you can send us a, on our twitter page, join the conversation. you can also email's. good morning come independent line. caller: i think he explained it good. this is relative to the corruption between wall street and washington. this has been all over the internet about things happening, nothing being done about it. you have all of these corruption scenarios going on. congress says, we did not see it. they do not see it until the taxpayers have to pay for it. host: thank you for the call. tony says, is it true dodd-frank has generated a fourth of 13,000 pages of regulation?
to the statute of our speaker. -- stature of our speaker. let's take a few minutes to provide some useful historical context. to think back to the beginning not only of -- not of this century, but the last. the world today is transfixed by the phenomenon of rapid economic growth in a number of countries that are rapidly treating major powers in the world. of course, the biggest are china and india. some others that would look fairly large in comparison to greet carter -- powers in the past, such as vietnam, russia, indonesia, and brazil. they are becoming much bigger players in the world. 100 years ago, the rise of germany as a great power led to two at catastrophically destructive wars. that also spawned a number of other tragedies, such as nazism and bolshevism, which turned the 20th century, which had begun with a decade of great promise, into the bloodiest in history. we cannot afford to repeat that history with even more terrible weapons of the 21st century. the challenge of managing a merging towers has become, arguably, the major challenge of our time. not that we are short on chal
not keeping the burden on either one of you. for a lot of us, we're trying to figure out how can we be accountable. we do not want to blame somebody else. that doesn't cut it to our employers. >> we have to stop pointing fingers. these false debates do not move anything for. i met in the state, i will not name it, with a number of superintendents. i asked the employers, how many of the high-school graduates are ready to come and your place of work? they said, less than 50%. and the room got quiet. they had never -- these were all good hearted people in the same community. they had never talked. somehow, whenever you can do, whenever we can do to facilitate both skidding past educators running business, they do not get it. so much mutual self-interest, but they had never had a conversation. that is what we have to figure out. >> we're in the middle of doing that, region by region. bringing the largest employers with their educators. we are guilty of this as governors, but you talk about having -- we want to be as tight as we can on the standards and as loose on how we get there. i kn
opinion. our phone lines are open. you can also join the conversation on our twitter page or send us an email. the question on members' personal health, how much should you know? 202-737-0001 for democrats. 202-737-0002 if you're a republican. you have a line for independents, 202-826-0205. a couple of stories related to this, first from the "chicago sun-times," former representative, now the mayor of chicago, rheaume emanuel, weighing in on all of this, saying don't rush jackson's return to congress. he added his voice, writes the "sun-times" for those representing privacy for an ailment most recently described as a mood disorder, and then poking fun at congress, why should he get back to work, congress does no work. the last time i checked, they had their second repeal of the bill, why rush? the story from the "chicago sun-times." house leaders offering support as jackson jr. treated for a disorder. spoker of the house john baners was asked about it yesterday saying we hope he gets well soon, and frankly, he hopes he gets back soon. the democratic leader in the house is nancy pelos
administrations suggests an answer. he has said regulatory uncertainty is invented by republicans to use current economic problems to support an ajeopardya year in and year out. it is political way. look at what this bill would do. it seems like frankenstein and it is very frightening. the underlying bill would block all efforts to protect public health, safety and the environment until the unemployment rate falls below the figure of 6% and it would impose canses on the government and would put impedements to consent decrees and settlements. nuclear power, the safety of the american public would be put at serious risk. my amendment to attempt to make this bill slightly less of a horror show. the dangers of nuclear power are well known. one accident could doom millions of people. because of the disasters that could happen, regulations to prevent from meltdowns in advance are important. the underlying bill would make it harder to adopt rules and policies. hampering the ability of the n.r.c. to put in safety measures could be devastating. my amendment would free the n.r.c. from the burdens of this
? >> i will say the way i get news is i use my twitter account to get almost all the news i get. for many people, especially young people, that is a cool way to do it. i find because i used my twitter stream -- i set up a specific group of people i follow for breaking news, and it has been built over several years, and it's really large at this point -- the point being i find i am a good 25 minutes ahead of people on breaking news because i am on twitter. i checked but other sources. that is my favorite way to follow news, and it feels the same as the shift when i was in newspapers. i was the only person reading blogs in the newsroom. twitter can serve the same purpose. can be fast and wrong, sorry you need to check. if you are a news junkie, that is my favorite thing. i also love "the wall street journal," fox is. i like to watch my own cliffs. hotair.com, because i work there now. the george mason university economists have their own blogs. a woman who works at newsweek -- i love reading her. aside from news, i like reading more analytical, wonky stuff. everybody done? since we are on c
pays for your health care. there has been a study showing how much that dilution costs us. it concluded that the income we lose because our employers taking part of our paid to purchase our health insurance, part of the premium we pay in addition to that, the taxes we pay and our out of pocket costs, the average american family pays $25,000 per year for the illusion that we get free health care. >> essentially, there's a reason for insurance, to protect against catastrophic costs. if you have a heart attack or cancer, you cannot just pay the doctor or the surgery. it is just like homeowners insurance or life insurance or any other insurance. when you prepare routine costs of front, you are paying the insurance company to do it. >> i'm a retired army physician. from your point of view and for your adversaries on the left, when all the dust settles, whatever and wins, what will happen to the military medical care system which includes the hospitals run by the uniformed services as well as the va system? >> i am glad you brought this up. it is little appreciated that one of the fastest-gr
, sent each of us a letter with a "time" magazine cover by joel kind entitled "how to die." this article is jarring to many because it's an issue that most would rather not confront. as a result, there's a great deal of unnecessary pain, confusion and suffering. it masks one of the most important issues in health care which, despite the manufactured controversy over death panels, is a rare sweet spot in the health care debate. it can improve the quality of life, in some cases length of life, and most important, we can help people understand their circumstances and get the care that they want. if this happens, the cost of health care will go down even as satisfaction and quality goes up. for most americans, the protocols followed by almost every hopped and practitioner will be to give the maximum amount of the most aggressive care in end of life situation, especially if patients have the money or insurance, they will be hooked up in their final stages of life to be resuscitated, cracking their ribs, massaging hearts. there will be tubes inserted, chemicals will be pumped, defibrillators w

of one broken promise after another. the president told us we would be saving $2,500 per household if we passed this health care bill. the americans' health insurance premiums have increased by almost that amount, which means the president was off by a stunning $5,000 per household. and americans are pulling their pockets inside out saying, mr. president, i don't have the money to pay $5,000 more per year on my health insurance policy and of course they don't. because this has to be the crown jewel of socialism. that's what government health care is. and senior citizens realized early on, they have the most to lose by the president's health insurance policy because what they found from this bill which has been commonly called obamacare is that $575 billion will be stolen away from them out of medicare. and not only will they have $575 billion less in medicare, still looking to having to spend, senior citizens out of their pockets $200 billion more in increased taxes for medicare. that's a big loss for america's senior citizens. but it doesn't stop there, mr. speaker. millions of american

not my opinion, regulatory system is a kenard used by republicans to pursue an agenda supported by the business community year in and year out. nornede, it's a case of political opportumism. that's his opinion. not mine. my concern is if you ask economists on whether or not legislation -- many pieces of legislation that we baffed called jobs bills -- the gentleman has pointed that out -- economists say in the short term which is really what we need to do, we need to do in the short term and the long term is not going to create jobs. . this week we haven't done anything to create jobs. might i ask the gentleman, i didn't see it next week, do we expect the 32nd or 33rd vote on repealing the affordable care act either next week or week after or week after that? as the gentleman knows, c.b.s. opines we spent some 80 hours on that issue with whatever cost is attendant to that, do we -- you can answer both questions, i suppose, but certainly i would be interested and members would be interested to know whether or not we are going to have another vote on repealing the affordable care a

without violating the institutional rights and corporation of free speech and it is just simply using contract law. for example, if your corporation sells something to the federal government, then you're not allowed to donate to the federal government and that to a political campaigns and that would probably ban by probably 490 of the fortune 500 companies , lockheed, exxon, every company. you could just put it in contract law. but i don't think the politicians would ever do that. host: next up is a call from tucson, arizona. loretta, you're on the air. caller: hi. i just wanted to say that i don't believe people really are voting on the issues and i think a lot of the money in politics is going into negative ads. i know here in arizona, we're full of them with senate and the presidency and it seems like the issues are overlooked and things like the health care bill, people don't even know what's in it and they say they don't like it just because democrats did it. host: what are you thinking of the tenor of the ads? are you watching them? caller: the ones i've seen so far are pretty n

will cut to news of a tragedy that reminds us of all the ways that we are united as one american family. by now, many of you know or have heard that a few miles outside of denver in a town called aurora, at least 12 people were killed when a gunman opened fired in a movie theater. dozens more are being treated for injuries at a local hospital. some of the victims are being treated at eight children's hospital. we are still gathering all of the facts about what happened in iraq. what we know is that police have one suspect in custody and the federal government stands ready to do what ever is necessary to bring war is irresponsible for this crime to justice. ring who ever is responsible for this crime to justice. i had the chance to speak with the mayor of colorado to express on behalf of myself, michelle, and the entire american family of who heartbroken we are. even as we learned how this happened and who is responsible, we may never understand what les anyone to terrorize their fellow human beings like this. such violence, such evil is senseless. it is beyond reason. while we may never

they could do it cheaper. give us a special model out there and launch it as a pilot and we'll show you how we can do these special programming and give us a return. well, after reviewing now what is a history of all of that, it was deemed that there were overpayments anywhere between 12% and 14%, so the dollars were slid over to programs like filling the doughnut hole and providing for screenings for our seniors. not taking it away from a category of health care consumers. in this case, an aged demographic of seniors, but taking those savings as we sweep those savings and reinvesting them in a way that provides balance, more sensitivity for the consumer rather than having record profits developed for an industry. to me that was progressive policy, and for people to then take those savings and use them in their own budget presentations for other purposes was disingenuous. now, when you talk about the efforts today of the affordable care act to include an exchange, what i think is oftentimes, representative garamendi, sometimes people see this as a public exchange that will be run by the gov
